Since its release in 2010, like everything Apple, the iPad has become a regular in almost every household. Having such a large surface area this is also one of the most popular repair service types we see come through our website. So, as expert technicians with lots of service experience and UK industry observation under our belt, we have a good view of what it currently costs to repair an iPad screen.

OK, let’s dig in!

From this article, you will learn

● Competitive Apple iPad screen repair cost for a range of iPad models.
● iPad repair – the factors that influence display replacement pricing.
● Common causes of iPad screen damage.

UK iPad screen replacement costs – the quick answer.

In short, at the time of constructing this article iPad repairs range from as little as £75 to £400 depending on the model of iPad you own.

That’s the short answer, but why the huge difference in pricing I hear you ask? Let’s take a more detailed look.

Not every iPad is built the same! The cost will vary depending on your iPad model.

The reason iPad repair costs are so varied is down to three factors:

1. The display construction

Models that are not from the Air and Pro range (such as the 6th, 7th 8th 9th generation) are
constructed in two pieces:

● Glass/touch
● LCD display panel

This makes for a much cheaper repair should your damage just be to the glass as the LCD wouldn’t need replacing.

However, modern Air and Pro range iPads use a composite display in which the glass/touch and LCD display panel are all bonded together. So even if it’s just the glass that cracked, the entire display would need replacing.

A side note:

There are repair shops around that will offer an iPad refurbishment service in which they can, in theory, separate the composite display.

However, it must be noted that it’s not cheap and, not least, high risk to the display. Ultimately this fix would also never be as strong as the original display.

2. The size of the iPad screen

It goes without saying that the larger the iPad display the more it’s likely to cost, especially where composite displays are involved.

3. Technical work needed

Almost every iPad offers different technologies and thus, for professional repair, various parts may need to be moved from one screen to the other. For example, the iPad 6/7/8 and 9th generation all have home buttons to be moved over. Whereas the iPad Air and Pro range tend to have Facial ID modules incorporated.

What are the symptoms of a broken iPad screen?

When facing a broken display, the symptoms usually fall into one of the following categories:

● The most common – cracked glass
● A completely black or compromised display
● Touch-related issues
● A combination of the above

Regardless of which one it is, here at Mobile Screen Fix we have extensive experience in iPad screen repair and can have it back to pristine in no time.

Ok, we’ve given you some pricing guidance above and your next question may be ‘Can I avoid breaking my screen by making a few simple changes in behaviour?’ Many have tried because there are a range of ways that damage to your device’s display can occur.

What causes iPad screen damage?

Damage can occur for various reasons and understanding these factors can help you take preventive measures.

Accidental drops are one of the most common causes of cracked or shattered iPad screens. The impact of a fall can lead to damage to the glass or the display beneath it. Applying excessive pressure on the screen, whether by sitting or placing heavy objects on it, can cause the glass to crack or the display to malfunction.

Finally, without preaching, the lack of a protective case or screen protector increases the vulnerability of the iPad to scratches, scuffs, and cracks.

A small tip when having your iPad screen replaced.

These screens when bonded back to the chassis are difficult to remove, one of the many reasons they simply don’t just fall off so if you suspect you may need your iPad battery replaced in the future, doing it when the screen is being replaced is the perfect time because iPad battery replacement is expensive as the risk of damaging the display is significant.

Here at Mobile Screen Fix, there is no additional labour cost for an iPad battery fitting, just the price for the battery itself.
